Hi Daddy!  Happy Birthday!!  From my desk it's so easy to see bits of you - evidence of all your love & support for a life of community, creativity & learning.  Because of you, I'm still doing my paper-fabric-mish-mashed "drawings"...

We are still surrounded by Japanese craft books (& trying to figure out when the rest of the world went "Zakka-crazy."  Do you recognize that top one?  You gave that to me over 20 years ago)...
